Orienteering race (Ashburton Street-O) 58:53  10.56 km (5:35 / km) +148m 5:13 / km
shoes: Adidas Energy Boost (purple)
Today was meant to be a rest day to let me properly recover from the weekend. Went to sports massage this morning then looked at my phone to find some slightly frantic messages from a colleague who'd heard the sad news from Princes Park and was worried.
Didn't have plans for the evening so I made a last minute decision to go to street-o even though it was miles away. Didn't look out the window (or at the radar) so failed to notice it was pouring with rain and as such, got pretty wet.
Street-O was ok. Something weird was happening in the east of the map where either the roads have never been mapped or they've been deleted. This caused me to run past 1 while trying to work out what on earth was going on. Still got them all under the hour though had to push a bit at the end.
One person was asking about my torch, saying it's awesome and they want one. Someone else told me it was too bright (try to move it downwards when I can see people coming towards me).
